Dell Inspiron n5110 laptop
Intel Centrino advanced-n 1030 network adapter
Windows 7 64bit professional
-(freshly re-formatted and does'nt contain any external installation except the network&graphics driver)
My problem :
This order of operations always crashes the network adapter:
Startup completed -> select a network -> connected -> disconnect ->
reconnect-> connected -> disconnect -> trying to connect to any network -> point of failure.
What do I mean by point of failure:
1) blue spinning disk Wifi icon gets stuck
2) trying to disable network adapter via "change adapter settings" disables nothing
3) trying to restart network service WlanAutoConfig - process gets stuck
4) this problem doesn't go away until I restart my computer.
When I startup safe mode with networking this problem disappears.

Hi MuppetJumper, I am sorry for the issue.
Let's try connecting with Intel® Proset Software.
